FOR PET PARENTS
Is it time?
For pet parents, this is one of life’s most challenging decisions.
There are many factors that enter into this decision. Trying to sort through the facts, emotions, other peoples opinions, etc., can be frustrating, confusing, and/or overwhelming.
The decision is much more nuanced than adding up a score to indicate if there is “sufficient quality of life” to continue.
"Your instant appreciation of my friend the snake gave me all the agency I needed to honor him through his last minutes."
- Dianne F.
Ultimately it is your decision, no one else's. There is no “objective” right or wrong.
By listening to the deepest place within yourself, you begin to feel an inner guidance leading you.
There are many unknowns during this process. My aim is to shed light on some of those unknowns, while also acknowledging that some of those unknowns will forever remain unknowable. Yet this is not a reason to despair. My intention is to provide you with perspectives for navigating this truth "with fierce grace" (a term coined by Ram Dass).
The goal is to discover peace within, by leaning into the mystery that is unfolding.PET PARENTS: contact Dr. Liz here
